[Writing] House of Hands draft

500 decent enough words today. But, I tell you, I don't like getting into the mind of a child murderer. I really don't. Especially when I have to kill a child (spill their blood in and on the house) as a plot point. Granted, the killing was off screen but I still feel dirty.

Snippet: Hours later, he stood over her bloody corpse, looking down at it with a scowl on his face. She had broken too quickly. It left him feeling cheated and dissatisfied. "Trash. Refuse. Garbage. Broken. Nothing." He sneered at it. "You're nothing, you stupid doll. Nothing. Why'd you break so easily? Flawed. Bad. Filthy. Look at you. You did this on purpose just to piss me off! Well, you did, you stupid bitch. Are you happy now?"

This is why I prefer to stick to supernatural stuff. Real life mundane horror gets me in a bad way. I will be happy when the House rips this guy from limb to limb.
